We were there with 2 couples who love good food and good wine. The food was good but not at the expected level, the wine was very good for the price asked. Nice atmosphere and quite efficient service.

And a bad one to finish it all off. If I am unhappy with a place I normally don't write about it, I just don't go back. But this one deserves a roasting. Imagine getting there and asking - "is it cooler inside or outside"...More

The restaurant is located in the ancient Ghetto near Piazza delle Erbe. The dining room is not very big but very intimate and romantic. The dishes proposed from our Chef Mario together with Mattia and Constance are mainly of fish during the spring and summer season and mainly of meat during the winter season. If you like fish you have to try our tuna fish tartare served with a lime sorbet and crispy celery while you prefer meat you can start with our steak tartare with wild mushrooms. Ask to Mattia for a wine, he will give you the right advise combined to your choice.
